“The prime minister of Turkey expressed his great interest in
cooperation with Crimea and instructed his government to hold active
negotiations on drawing investment in Crimea and establish and develop
closer business contacts,” the Crimean information policy directorate
quoted Mohyliov as saying following the meeting.

In particular, the two discussed investment in the Crimean
agricultural and industrial sectors and the provision of grants to
Crimea for supporting returnees.
